The school day is only four hours long in Guatemala and the majority of children attend public schools in the morning. Therefore, Open Windows Learning Center is very busy in the afternoon.
We have placed an emphasis on homework with the aim of improving their school performance and learning. The children work in four groups, each attended by a teacher. The groups are: preparatory, 1st and 2nd grades, 3rd and 4th grades and 5th and 6th grades.
When children do not bring homework, they are given an activity sheet involving math, reading comprehension or writing to support what they are learning in school. The reading and writing support we provide enables them to aspire to higher levels of education.
At the end of the assignments, teachers conduct interactive games with the children and supervise games the children initiate.
